TSPA – Tissue Sparing Prostate Ablation


Challenges in Prostate Cancer treatment

  • Most common treatments are Robotic Surgery and Radiotherapy.
  • Those aggressive treatments are frequently associated with adverse side-effects, such as Erectile Dysfunction and Urinary Incontinence.

What is Focal or Localized Therapy?

  • Focal Therapy or Ablation is a less aggressive treatment option, where only areas within the Prostate having cancer cells are treated.
  • The main goal of Focal Therapy is eradicating tumors within the Prostate and avoiding damage to sensitive surrounding tissues, thus preserving patients quality of life.
  • Focal Therapy can be a good option to younger patients, patients with less aggressive types of cancer and to those unable or unwilling to undergo surgery.

What is TSPA?

TSPA – Tissue Sparing Prostate Ablation

  • TSPA’s Encage device generates a Faraday Cage effect, preventing damage to surrounding tissues.
  • Encage’s effectiveness has been demonstrated in clinical studies done in prestigious institutions, such as New York University (NYU), University College London (UCL), Moffitt Cancer Center and Long Island Jewish (LIJ).
  • TSPA has been developed over more than 12 years in a $ 15 Million program.
  • TSPA is available in the US on a Concierge basis in a limited number of centers.

How the technology works

  • Encage RF bipolar device has an inner electrode and an external coiled electrode.
  • The heat effect starts in the inner electrode and propagates towards the external coil, until the tissue within the limits of the cage is totally destroyed.
  • The outer coil generates a Faraday Cage effect preventing destruction to spread beyond the limits of the cage.

  • TSPA is a short outpatient procedure. No incisions and no hospital stay.
  • Clinical studies demonstrated excellent cancer control and virtually no adverse side-effects.
  • Recovery is fast and patients can retrieve normal life in a few days. No need to keep a catheter after the procedure in most cases.
